From Access Hollywood:
Leslie Carter – the sister of Nick and Aaron Carter – has died, a spokesperson for the Carter family has confirmed to Access Hollywood.
“Our family is grieving right now and it’s a private matter. We are deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter, and granddaughter, Leslie Carter,” the Carter family said in a statement to Access on Tuesday night. “We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time.”
Leslie, an aspiring singer, was 25.
She died earlier in the day on Tuesday in upstate New York. No further details on Leslie’s death were immediately available.
In 2008, she married her husband Mike.
In July 2010, Leslie reportedly announced on her Twitter page that she was pregnant with her first child. Leslie reportedly gave birth to daughter Alyssa Jane Ashton on April 1, 2011.
In 1999, Leslie reportedly signed a record deal with Dreamworks Records and began working on a debut album. However, the album was never released.
Her single, “Like Wow!,” was featured on the “Shrek” soundtrack in 2001.
Hm. That really sucks. When I first read the article, I was like, “Wow, those Carters just don’t have good luck with their careers, or staying clean and not looking like a jacked meth-head, or you know, living,” but then I read that she actually had stuff going for her, unlike her two brothers – a husband, a daughter – and that sort of make things even worse. I mean, damn. Her little daughter was only a year old. Not even a year old. That’s just terrible.
No official cause of death has been released, and in response to the news, Nick Carter has cancelled all of his scheduled musical appearances.
What a shame. RIP Leslie Carter.
